Well if you’re curious and ready to find out, keep reading.
#1 Golden Rule
It takes 20 hours to learn anything. Really. It’s that simple, as easy as 1,2,3.
Whether you want to learn how to play the piano, learn a new language, or learn how to cook, the rule still applies.
It’s all a simple learning technique that I have incorporated into my life, and you can too! It’s definitely one of the most eye opening techniques where you are truly open to the idea that anything is possible.
If you have 20 hours to spare.
#2 How To Put It Into Action
To go into the step by step action plan, you will need a simple piece of advice.
You will need to know what you want to accomplish at the end of those 20 hours.
Remember that it all starts with small steps that accumulate and then set you up for success. Although it is common go think that you could learn something in just one day, a much better approach would be to do little steps every day.
For example, just take out 10 minutes of your day to work towards that goal instead of doing something continuously, because let’s face it, there’s probably going to be a distraction like our phones or a hungry stomach growling for us to drift away from concentrating for 20 hours nonstop.
Really, you have to visualize yourself accomplishing your goals, and in order to do that, you must first have that goal written down somewhere.
So, grab a pen and paper, or it can even be a napkin and a pen, or a post it and a marker and write down your goal.
The ultimate goal doesn’t need to be something grand like becoming Beethoven or a polyglot. Do make sure that whatever your goal is, you have a clear direction of where you want to and where you’re headed.
Once you have your goal written down, you will have a clearer sense of knowing what is important in your life.
#3 What does it mean, really?
You will first have to ask yourself the question, what is success to me?
Some examples of this include family, friendships, and career. Think about your personal needs and what success means to you because it looks different for everyone on this planet.
#4 Remember, Don’t Forget
Continuously remember to check in with each of your success values as you go through your journey of learning, and you’ll see how far you go. Check-in with each one and you’ll see how you can learn anything in 20 hours.
